Puzzle #9: NYC Word Pyramid II: Author, Author!

Happy Fourth of July!  This week is another word pyramid, and forgive my lack of patriotism, but it is not Independence Day themed.  This week the pyramid begins with an author and ends with a poet.  Both have a NYC link.  Again, a word pyramid starts with a one letter answer, then a letter is added for a two letter answer, and then another letter is added to the first two.  For example both A, AT, APT and A, TA, PAT would both be acceptable answers for the first three answers to a word pyramid.  Happy puzzling!
